This is HP.com/Support, and the Product Information page for the
Compaq Presario SR1120NX,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodinfoCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=425921
(HP bought out Compaq)

On this page,
1.You can click on the Motherboard Specifications heading, (MS6577. It's made by MSI for HP. Giovanni-GL6, Giovanni2-GL6. These are names that HP has given to the motherboard), and get info on the motherboard. There is a list of detailed information, as well as an illustration, and a photo of the motherboard, (Top view)

As you stated, the Maximum Total Amount of ram memory, (DDR Sdram at 266MHz, or 333MHz), is 2GB's. The Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB. (Under the Main Memory heading)

Looking down the list further, look at the Slots heading.
Three 32-bit Master PCI Bus Slots.
The expansion slot you have for graphics will be any one of those PCI slots that is open. (Unused)

These are some examples of graphics cards used in a PCI slot,
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=319&name=PCI-Video-Cards&
(I would also check Newegg.com)
Which one to choose?
I would advise something like a Radeon 9250 for your computer.
(VisionTek is one company that carries this ATI graphics card)


I hope you realize the manufacturer recommends a maximum of 1GB of RAM in this system.
\015\012
\015\012Since the system only has PCI slots, any kind of PCI video card should work without a problem.
